People often us the terms of “Christian ministry” and “serving God” to identify specific “types” of activities in specific places. For example, “serving God” by teaching a Bible study, or preaching, etc.
“Some years ago I wrote this as a spoof, of sorts. I was dealing with the concept; Is God all powerful, is He really in control? This article highlights the contradictions that we often see people deal with:”
God made a perfect earth, but it has been spoiled and seems to be bent upon destruction. This is not what God intended, somehow he must have failed,
Somehow things went wrong, things got out of God’s control.
Someday God will be God, Someday He will win the battle, but not now,
He must not be strong enough to overcome evil now, but maybe someday.
I think of the past few posts that I have written here. The thought came to me that, among other things, is that I’ve been a little bit gripey about some things. It doesn’t take much effort to gripe about something, especially about someone else. But the griping about others is really an exercise of (inappropriate) pride. We all have challenges to face, and it is more beneficial to everyone to think about solutions, rather than gripes.
We have children, Sarah (age 14) and Joseph (age 7, almost 8). We have been homeschooling them both from the beginning. Sarah is starting 8th grade and Joseph is starting 2nd grade, but 3rd in Math. We have had our challenges trying to figure out what and how much to teach them, how to plan out their lessons, etc. Over the years we have tried out various methods and materials. My wife Emmy has been very instrumental in starting Sarah off right. When Sarah was still a todler, she’d have her help sort the laundry as she taught our daughter her colors.
As I have grown up in “christianity”, and throughout much of my adult life, I have heard much talk about the “Holy Spirit” and the “Trinity”. We are told that the “Spirit” is a person, one of the “three in one” of the Trinity. Is that true?
What does the evidence say. For one, the word “trinity” is not found in the bible any place. Let’s look at the term “spirit”. Look in Galatians 5:…. It says that the “fruit of the spirit” is a “way of life”, not in such petty things as “speaking in tongues”
